MILITARY CHAPLAINCY SPECIALIZATION
Military Chaplaincy Specialization
Wesley Theological Seminary has a long commitment to training, equipping, and supporting persons called to chaplaincy within the various branches of the United States Armed Forces. The Military Chaplaincy specialization invites Master of Divinity students to explore and prepare for this vocational calling while also pursuing ordination or credentialing in their own spiritual tradition, fulfilling current requirements of the respective Armed Services.
Students in this specialization will be guided by CH (COL-Ret) James Driscoll, a UMC pastor who served in the National Guard and Reserves as well as active duty with the Army, recently retiring from the Chief of Chaplains Office in the Pentagon. CH Driscoll is special assistant to the president at Wesley and is a hospital chaplain at Chesapeake Regional Medical Center in VA.
